Altering Eyes: New Perspectives on Samson Agonistes

Synopsis

In the last decade or so, the traditional reading of Milton's tragedy has been challenged so successfully that an alternative Samson becomes the point of reference and standard of measure for all recent criticism. With the emphasis now falling on the poem's peculiar indeterminacy, its dialogic character, and its protagonist's perplexing ambiguity while underscoring the importance of the biblical story and texts, the secrets of Samson's story are released from what appears to be the most ambiguous among Milton's poems.
